Chris Lehmann posted the “EduCon 2.2 — Call For Conversations and Registration” about a week ago. I have not been able to attend EduCon in person yet, but the presentations I’ve seen online and experienced vicariously through the blog post reflections and notes of others have been phenomenal. If there’s any way you can get to Philadelphia at the end of January for this conference, I highly encourage you to go and bring a team of peers from your school. Consider both attending and presenting, or I should say “sharing a conversation.” The “guiding principles” of the conference should serve as a framework for all our schools:

  1. Our schools must be inquiry-driven, thoughtful and empowering for all members
  2. Our schools must be about co-creating — together with our students — the 21st Century Citizen
  3. Technology must serve pedagogy, not the other way around
  4. Technology must enable students to research, create, communicate and collaborate
  5. Learning can — and must — be networked

I love the reference to “the three C’s” of 21st century learning here! :-)
